The largest species is said to grow up to 1.5mm which would make them visible to the naked eye.

If anyone had any idea where I could obtain some, I'd be grateful. My research shows they are specifically located in the Eastern hemisphere, but they also seem to be heavily populated in the upper inter tidal areas, so I'm thinking they could be along any coast.

Does anyone have more info on tardigrades visible to the naked eye?
